With PublicSquare, there are no upfront fees. While you do pay a kickstarter payment of 3% of the initial home price - as the name implies - this amount kickstarts your deposit, which you can use in full later when you're ready to complete the purchase of your home.
You also have to pay for a lawyer to make sure all the contract terms are clear, but these costs are usually only around $1000.
Therefore, with PublicSquare's rent to buy homes, you do not incur the typical upfront costs of regular home-buying. By foregoing the standard 10-20% deposit requirements and not having to pay the initial stamp duty cost, you can move into your dream home within weeks, not years.
At PublicSquare, we also do not charge risk fees, application fees, bond, or lender's mortgage insurance (LMI).
